Hello Everyone,Just uploaded part 2 to the Krenov cabinet build. In this video we apply the veneer with a vacuum bag. This was our first attempt at this and the results were great! Check it out. Here is a link to the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKL-GUSYr7w
My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #4: Fitting the vises and finishing up
After a lot of planing and a lot of sanding I arrived at the above, and was ready to fit the vises. (By the way, the white spots are filler used to seal and fill som nasty planing marks where the grain switched direction… Next time I’m buying better wood.) I wanted a leg vise, but wasn’t decided on whether I was going to go with a standard parallel guide with a pin or if I wanted to try a pinless design. I haven’t used a lot of benches but the pin just didn’t...
My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #3: The legs, the frame and a whole bunch of joinery
The top felt really solid and I was starting to get a feeling for the weight I’d eventually end up with. I wanted to fix my mistake with the tenon walls I’d sawn prior to the assembly so I could fit the breadboards: I decided to just chop it out with a sharp chisel. I enjoyed this process a lot, which was fortunate considering that I spent the better part of a weekend putting the bottom together and attaching it to the top. Safe to say I got to hone both my chiseling and my...
After watching Paul Sellers’ workbench videos I decided to assemble the top first an deal with the legs etc later, so after making the mortise and the piece that would later support the tail vise I was ready to glue up the top. I was going to do it in 2 parts and after a lot of planning and practising, I glued the first 6 pieces up and it worked like a charm, but the second round became a lot more stressful despite my best efforts to be prepared: As you can see, it was a bit of a...
Parallel guide chain mechanism To make the chain mechanism, I used #35 chain and the sprockets are 10T with a 3/8 center. The chain is attached using two chain links. I had to do some metal working to create a few items: the brackets to hold the sprockets and a way of securing the chain at both ends. I had a 1.5” rectangular steel tube in my scrap collection so I used an angle grinder with a cutoff wheel to make both brackets that hold the sprockets with 3/8 bolts. Big box store ang...
My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #1: Why I needed a workbench, planning the project and getting materials.
Hello everybody I’ve been lurking here for a while now, and since I just finished my first big build this weekend I figured I’d make a post to showcase the process and some of the mistakes I made. I’ve been wanting to get into woodworking for a while so a couple of months ago I decided to pay a visit to my parents’ house to spend a few hours in their workshop. I live in a small apartment in the city so visiting my childhood home in the countryside is quite litera...
Thank you for looking!
So I’ve been dabbling in this hobby for 4-5 years now, and decided to make a side business out of it. The first step is a name. So how about “Measure Twice, Cut Thrice Woodworking”, or “Cut Thrice Woodworks”. Thoughts?
I came across this gif on the interweb this morning and had to share it with everyone. This is just an insanely thin shaving. http://i.imgur.com/BUpsUAF.gif
